    There was not a single erratic throw on that drive.

    You responded to a post I made to someone claiming he looked like a HoF. I said he had a couple of erratic throws where his receiver bailed him out. For example the last throw he threw it to the dirt when he didn't need to and his WR made a play. You then pointed out he made a "beautiful 5 yard pass" so I'm wondering what your point was.
    I'm sorry, but that throw was EXACTLY where it was supposed to be. Are you familiar with scramble drills? The WR was running back to the line, away from the defenders. If that ball isn't low and away, like it was SUPPOSED to be, Moore gets hit, ball might pop out, and POOF! turnover. Instead of much easier field goal.



    I mean this with all due respect, but are you serious man?

    No, I think he meant the 10 yard one for a first down.

    I'd say he did alright.

    Backup WR's sans King are so so.

    So he's in a tough situation.

    Counted one sack where it was 1-2 seconds tops.
    Yeah, I personally want to see him start one of the upcoming games (or get some PT) just to see him with the first team.

    The backup OL certainly didn't do him any favors, but he was at least able to show off his mobility and make some solid throws. Regardless, he definitely looked more comfortable than last season.

    The Unmentionable QB was mentioned, but only to illustrate some double standards and dishonesty that people use to "evaluate" qbs. The same problems come from both sides of the fence. That's it, though. I know that I certainly don't want to bring up stats, pictures, and emotional feelings to directly compare the 2

    And Elway could certainly go Brutus, but I suspect that this would come only after a full season or two of complete suckage. Since I, personally, don't expect much out of Brock, I'm not looking forward to our time Post-Peyton.

    On a somewhat related note, I feel that Elway will truly show whether he's a good gm only after Manning leaves. Manning has been a Band-Aid for coaches and gm's during his entire career at indy, and now for Fox. He even managed to make Caldwell look half-competent

    If the Manning/broncos don't win a superbowl while he's here, if Elway & co can at least keep a competitive team going after Manning leaves, I'll consider myself "won over".

    When Elway publicly declares somebody to be the "future of the franchise", I'm pretty sure that fans have a legitimate interest in analyzing the play of the backup qb. This isn't about comparing backup qb's from other teams. Unless you want to compare Ozzy to SF's backups. Now those guys were.... truly terrible

    I'm naturally negative on Os, since I really didn't like the pick, but in spite of that, I thought he could've done much worse. He didn't freak out and start chucking the ball to any random player, at least. Even if he was a bit skiddish and hesitant, with bad o-line performance, he didn't completely lose composure, so that's a good sign.

    Even if he turns out terrible (not my claim, here), as long as he takes care of the football, we can at least have a chance to win games on strong defense and special teams.

    It certainly could be. I'm sure there are countless threads discussing it all over the internetz. My point isn't a direct comparison of "Unnamed QB" vs "Brock". It's pointing out how a qb can be every bit as bad/good as another, and get a free pass from legitimate criticism because he "throws it all pretty 'n stuff", or "he's super tall! I bet he can see the whole field!"

    People can talk about eye tests, stats, whatever. If a qb is ineffective, he's ineffective. Pretending that Os' performance was "pretty good" is being extremely generous, to the point of deliberate blindness. It doesn't mean that the sky is falling for him. It's just preseason. But let's call a spade a spade.

    Osweiler looked... ok.

    Made a few solid throws including a nice one to Julius near the sideline with the pocket closing. Liked his anticipation and accuracy there.

    The protection wasn't good and he took a bunch of sacks. Seemed anxious back there even with solid protection at times. Hard to tell from the sideline view if a receiver was open. At least he wasn't throwing picks.

    Were a few throws that were there that could've been more accurate though. His rollout to Virgil Green was completed but by throwing it to the inside he made Green turn and get smacked. Gotta throw that to the outside.

    The throw to King in the red zone seemed to go towards his body instead of in front of King and in stride. Could've helped pick up the first.

    And he overthrew another open receiver near the beginning and put him in a bad position.

    Small sample size but needs to improve his accuracy in little ways. That's what the best do. I definitely like his attitude and work ethic though.

    Does this have anything to do with the blind hypocrisy that people use while evaluating quarterback play?
